The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
These Rules of Conduct constitute a legal agreement between you (“you”, “your” or “user”) and Paradox Interactive AB (“Paradox”, “we” or “us”), and governs your use of Paradox´s community forum (the “Forum”).
The Forum is intended to be a place where you and other Paradox fans can gather around and engage in discussions on various subjects (primarily Paradox’s games) in a friendly and non-aggressive environment. Paradox wants every person to have an enjoyable experience and these Rules of Conduct have been written in accordance with this goal.
Some parts of the Forum can be accessed and read without creating an account.
Paradox does not warrant that any message on the Forum is accurate, complete or useful, and Paradox is not responsible for the content of any message or post. You remain solely responsible for the content of your post or message and you agree to indemnify and hold harmless Paradox, its affiliates, subsidiaries, employees, representatives and agents with respect to any claim based upon transmission and/or content of your post or message. Any posts or messages express the views of the author, not necessarily the views of Paradox and its staff.
The Rules of Conduct are subject to change without notice. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are aware of the current rules and guidelines for posting.
You shall at all times respect and refrain from harassing and/or personally attacking other users or the staff of Paradox. You agree to respect the rights of other users to have their own and maybe differing opinions. You shall not send any messages or posts that are considered foul, vulgar, sexually harassing, racially offensive or in any way discriminatory. This includes, but is not limited to, sexist language, ethnic slurs, hate speech and religious epithets. Paradox reserves the right to, in its sole discretion, remove any such posts or messages.
Furthermore, you may not make any posts or messages that are inflammatory with the perceived intent to rile people up (i.e. "trolling" and "flaming") or post any messages that are off-topic. Chain letters, pyramid schemes and solicitations of any kind are not allowed on this Board.
Except for the specially designated "other language" sub-forums, all posts are to be in English as that is the common language of the Forum moderators.
Any user who feels that a message or post is objectionable is encouraged to report the post or message using the “Report”-option at the bottom of the message.
In general any post that is overly negative, doesn't contribute to the forum or simply contains foul language and insults is toxic. If your post doesn't contribute and instead serves as a way to stir up more negativity and rage from other users, it's toxic. Keep this in mind:
- Look at your post history. If the majority of your posts are troll posts against other players or telling other players that the Paradox team doesn't care/doesn't listen/doesn't know what they are doing, that's not productive. Don't reply to posts to say no one will reply. If you aren't looking to help the player with a question please do not respond.
- Posts that contain threats, attacks, insults aimed at Paradox staff or zero-value trolls will be deleted. They may also result in an immediate and permanent revocation of posting privileges. These will not use a time consuming infraction system. A good guideline to use for tone is: If you wouldn’t want someone walking into your living room speaking the words you’re about to post; it’s best to find another way to say it.
Paradox is dedicated to providing a conference experience for everyone, regardless of race, religion, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size or age.
